MMM.D26 :: Tania in Lomo

We were on our way home from this month’s BurdaStyle Sewing club meet up. Which was so much fun! I always have a great time when I get together with other sewcialists. It’s a special bonus when the kids can all come along.

And was nice to have a reason to wear this brand, spankin’ new make: Megan Nielsen’s Tania Culottes! They sooo super work! My kids kept questioning me about why they shouldn’t call it a skirt, lol

I cut the size medium, with the length of the largest size, and made the waistband pieces a bit larger. I usually have trouble sticking to the recommended seam allowance, but I must have done a good job because the larger pieces were too long. I was able to cut them down, no problem. BUT, I did have a bear of a time with the hems.

I’m sure I was making this face the whole time, lol

This challis loved to slip around, so my back pieces ended up longer on the outer edges. Which made it obvious that I wasn’t wearing a skirt which is NOT the point of this cleverly designed pattern. Though it hurt to do, I unpicked both (double) hems, trimmed them even with the front, serged, pressed, and added the new hem. It was a real pain in the ass, but so worth it because I love these!! I need to buy a ton more challis to make a culotte collection ;)

In short, buy this pattern. Make. And wear!

  1. I love the way you’ve styled this! I just bought this pattern and want to make it in a longer length so I may do the same as you and cut using the length of the largest size.

  2. I am trying so hard not to buy any new patterns right now but I keep seeing cute versions of this one…I love yours, and they totally look like a skirt! I just started on the Cascade skirt tonight, can’t wait to finish it up. That Megan Nielsen is totally blowing my sewing budget :)

  3. Wow! These look AWESOME! Cool culottes– I seriously don’t know how Megan pulled that off. These look great– way to take the time to fix everything because they’re perfect now!

  4. I (like Kelly) am on a pattern fast right now but the Cascade and culottes are CALLING to me. Especially after seeing how cute they look on you! DAMN YOU MEGAN AND YOUR TEMPTATIONS!
